flying domestically with tools?

Anyone have advice for flying domestically (in Canada, if that matters) with electronics tools? I assume stuff like a soldering iron, power supply, multimeter, and USB scope would need to be checked, but I'm not sure if my tools would survive being tossed around during baggage handling, or if they'd survive depressurization and large temperature gradients (that I assume checked bags might be subject too).

Also not sure if bringing electronics tools will get me stopped by security or not...
